Re: Oil Change *For the last time*

when putting oil back in the bike you just put it in the black tank, not the crankcase? It won't blow up the motor will it?

thanks

Re: Oil Change *For the last time*

That was a great write up! I swore that the manual did say though that the raptor 660 takes about 1.9 quarts and not the 2.5 that was writte. i could be wrong though, other than that, that write up is very much appreciated! youguys are awesome!

Re: Oil Change *For the last time*

Thanks for the write up.. I printed it so I can take it with me when I actually do it. Could someone post the tools needed to complete the oil change? Like what is needed to take off the skid plate .. ect. My bike is stored in Glamis so I need to take the tools with me on my next trip.

Thanks again,
Jarred

The manual uses Liters primarily for volume measurement so the first amount listed is 1.9 L but in the parentheses it has 2.06 Qt, although my raptor generally takes more than that. Also, you should warm your bike up a bit (thus warming up the oil) because it expands and thats how it should be measured.

Re: Oil Change *For the last time*

Good write up!
I warm mine up, but I don't check it at it's hottest, liek after a big run, just reasonably warm.

I found the filter cross-reference on this site, and was happy that my personal detective work matched what I see here.

There are some in-depth discussions about oil filters all over the www.

Here's what I learned doing my research.
Fram's are down near the bottom of the barrel in quality and filtering ability.
Steer clear of them.

Purolator Pure 1's and the NAPA Gold series get very high ratings.
They contain more filtering media AND have superior flow, they do a better all-round job.

WIX makes NAPA. Put a "5" in front of a NAPA number and it is the WIX number.
NAPA 1356 = WIX 51356 ... pretty easy.

For my 2003 Raptor , I use the longer filters, 3.25" rather than 2.5"
I don't find the extra length gets in the way. Longer is supposed to give you a little more filtering capacity and will help with a small tidbit of extra oil cooling ability, since it has a larger surface area.

I personally use Purolator Pure 1, PL14610 or PL14620
The NAPA Gold 1356 would be my next choice.

If you have the Blue Raptor, the Pure 1 filters are a metallic blue, and almost match.
I have the blue frame paint, and the Pure 1's are really close to that color.
I take the labels off for that custom look. People ask: "Where did you get that Filter!"

The NAPA filters are black, (pretty sure).

The Specs on these replacement Raptor filters are:
Threads= 20 x 1.5mm
14psi by-pass valve
anti-drain back valve
2.3" O.D. gasket
